Lost Kingdoms, known in Japan as simply Rune (ルーン Rūn), is a fantasy video game developed by From Software and published by Activision in North America and Europe. Lost Kingdoms is a card-based action role-playing game where battles are fought in real-time.
Game may crash randomly, usually after giving an 'unknown pointer' error two or three times over the course of an hour or so.
Intro videos give black screens and choppy/static filled audio.
Direct3D Backend Problem
Using the D3D backend when selecting the "Shayeel Passage" level causes a Texture Loading Failure exception error. For now use the OpenGL backend in order to play this level.
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.

This title has been tested on the environments listed below:

|Windows 7 x64||AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ 3.3GHz||ATI Radeon HD 4870||Lost Kingdoms on Dolphin Emulator 1080p||Vortextk|
|Windows||Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 @ 3.4GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6950||Lost Kingdoms HD Widescreen Hack||Spartacus|
|Windows||Intel Core i7-960 @ 3.2GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6870||Played entire game start to finish with a sibling through netplay using Dolphin Netplay 4.0-652. Game ran at various framerates throughout different levels, most levels ran at a consistent 30 FPS. Usually when a lot of major effects were going on the game would slow down gradually. Had to use OpenGL to access the Shayeel Passage Level. Game runs all the way throughout in netplay. **Warning** During netplay the game would freeze occasionally during saving and corrupt the file. This appears to be a random thing with the Netplay branch Dolphin emulator and I've found no definitive solution, it happens sometimes and others it won't.||Desmond27|
